GetStats is a very basic web server log file analyzer that will produce
statistical reports of the usage of your web site. It is pre-installed for
use on all our Virtual Servers. You simply run getstats
from the Virtual Server command line to produce text and HTML reports.
We have patched GetStats so that it is Y2K compliant, but we
cannot guarantee the performance of this patch. The previous version
was not Y2K compliant and will not function correctly after 12/31/1999.
If you are currently using GetStats to build statistical reports
of your web site traffic, we strongly recommend that you
migrate to a package that is Y2K compliant. Analog
continues to be supported and is also freely available for easy
installation on all Virtual Servers.
GetStats can be used either interactively (from the command line) or periodically
in batch mode using cron.
For interactive mode, Telnet
or SSH to your Virtual Server, and then at the shell prompt type
the getstats command with the appropriate report option(s). For
% getstats <report_options>
| NOTE: Your log
files must be in Common Log Format in order for GetStats to run
properly. See Changing the Web Server
Log Format for more details.
We strongly suggest you migrate to a package that can handle the
Combined Log Format, such as Analog
There are several major types of reports this program can produce. You
can use as many options as you like to create combinations of reports.
